Saab has agreed to jointly work with the Naval Shipyard in Gdynia, Poland, to provide naval solutions for the Polish Navy’s Orka submarine programme.

The Polish Navy’s Orka submarine programme is a modernisation project that includes the construction of several new classes of ships, and plans for the country to obtain three submarines.

The new submarines will replace the navy’s four Kobben-class boats and the single Project 877E submarine ORP Orzel, as reported by IHS Jane’s.

"We welcome this agreement and believe it is a milestone in our efforts to offer support to the Polish Orka future submarine programme."

Saab will supply RBS15 Mk3 missiles and Sea Giraffe radars for the Polish Navy’s fast attack vessels, thereby providing the force with an effective long-range strike capability for sea and land engagement.

The navy recently selected Saab’s Double Eagle MCM system for its newly built mine hunting ship, the Kormoran II.

Saab Poland country manager Jason Howard said: "Establishing strong local partnerships is a cornerstone of our business approach.
